ATHEROS AR8112 LAN Driver

Postby grenyer » 2010/09/20 22:06:54

Good afternoon.

I bought an ECS G31T-M7 v1.0 motherboard. It has an Atheros AR8112 10/100 LAN.
I would like to install it.
How can I do ?

Thank you for your help.

Welcome to the CentOS fora.

The recommended reading for all new members is the FAQ & Readme First.

With regard to the relevant driver for the Atheros device, will will need to known the Vendor:Device ID Pairing (a.k.a. the fingerprint) for the NIC. You may find it helpful to read FAQ #4 at the ELRepo website.

In summary, please execute the following on the system in question and post its output --

Code: Select all

[b]for BUSID in $(/sbin/lspci | awk '{ IGNORECASE=1 } /net/ { print $1 }'); do /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -m; /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -n; done[/b]

You may find it easier to use copy / paste, in conjunction with the classic sneakernet, to avoid any typos and transcription errors.

Thank you for that information.

Your next task is to become familiar with the ELRepo Project. ;-)

When I search the Device IDs page for that device fingerprint, (1969:2048), I see --

Code: Select all

[b]pci   1969:2048   kmod-atl2[/b]

Hence we now know that your NIC is supported by the kernel independent, kABI tracking kmod-atl2 package. Ensure that you install the correct package for your system architecture and kernel type.

If you are unsure which one to choose, please post the output returned by --

Code: Select all

[b]uname -rmi[/b]
